  • Alternative exhaust???

    Well to be blunt and to the point...... this is MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION !!!!!

    I am finding the remus not loud enough under full acceleration. Its great around town nice and quiet and loud when needed, but on the open road its nowhere near as loud as I want it to be, in comparison to the Jag XKR 510 and XKR 530's I drive from week to week. Sooo .... my question is ...... is there an exhaust out there that can be both?? Quiet around town and very very loud on the open road ??

    And before people start saying Piper this and Piper that !!! ....... I have been in a Piper powered Astra VXR and its far too much of a constant DRONE at low speed ........ it is relatively loud,I'll give it that. But the low speed noise isn't for me. It sounds horrid IMO !!

    This is only a general question, obviously if there isn't then I'll just stick with the remus, for now.

    Many thanks

      What Piper system did you test, I agree the single silencer does drone. Perhaps the dual silencer setup wouldn't?

        Yeah it was single silencer. Sounded like a sick car around town Horrible sound at low speed.

        and since alot of my driving is around town, I want it to be relatively quiet (which the Remus is) I wast want more on the open road......maybe I am asking too much.

          I was wandering that, as the Jag systems are switchable too, but only on full thorttle do they open up fully .

          Aren't the Wortec's very pricey though?? £1500 or so

            Your main issue is that you are comparing exhaust noise from cars with V8 510/530 bhp to the Astra 237 bhp.

            The astra is not going to produce the same noise, does not matter what exhaust you have,

              I know that mate I work as a Car Driver for Jaguar ....... But the Piper is a hell of alot louder than a Remus. But its drone around town i couldn't stand on a day to day basis. Where the Remus is great around town but just hasn't got the loudness on the open road.

              Just after suggestions TBH .

                            blueflame is your best bet.

                            ask vxrdave for a vid. i belive he wanted quieter with performance and i think, not sure, pretty loud on full chat
